Beyond the Norms: Gender & Activism in Historical and Contemporary Contexts

Content Deepening Courses

Description of offering

What is the relationship between gender and power? How and why are cultural concepts of gender identities refashioned over time? What does it mean to think in terms of feminisms and masculinities? How do gender identities factor into forms of resistance and activism? This workshop adopts a global lens to explore the dynamic and evolving role of gender identities in shaping social norms, political power, and movements for human rights. It will also consider how gender is embodied and expressed through language, environmental politics, and forms of resistance.
